Just works perfectly
Of all the radio player apps I've tried, including the specific apps for specific stations, this is the only one that has worked flawlessly. I can find all the uk stations I want and they very very very ever drop and tbh that's probably more likely my signal where I work.
I specifically like one little feature which never works on any other apps ive tried is that they work flawlessly with AirPods! When I pause or remove a pod when I double tap/ put the pod back in, the app starts again as it would the music player, every other app I use freaks out when you pause/ take a pod and you have to use the phone to start again. It's a small thing but my favourite .
I would like then to add world radio support in the future 😎
This app is straightforward to use and connects straight away I especially like the car mode because I can switch stations easily but that's only on my top 4 favourite stations I would like the car mode to let me choose between all my favourite stations apart from that this app is excellent, I also like the fact that there is no pop ups and adverts.
This just works.... easy to find your radio station and store in a favourites list for ease of finding again.
I use this app in car to listen to radio via cellular network and sometimes it stops when there is a signal drop. Allowing the app to cache prior to playing would help resolve this.
